      FILIPINO BLOOD STEW - THE RECIPE

      The Philippines! The jewel of the orient, purveyors of the greatest hip-hop dance troupes and probz the most colonised place in the world. But although I'm a proud half-Filipina, the cuisine has always left me wondering "WTF"?! So to conquer my fears and appease my mother, I decided to tackle some of their weirder dishes. First up, blood stew.

      Ingredients
      lots x pork loin
      1 x pack pig guts
      4 cups x of pig’s blood
      3 x bell peppers
      lots x garlic, crushed and minced
      lots x chopped onions
      2 cups x stock

      Step 1.

      Chop up your meat and piggy poop tubes. Try not to hurl.

      Step 2.

      Fry off all the pig with your onions, garlic and pepper.

      Step 3.

      Pour in the blood and stock, then leave to simmer into a big brown mush.



      UBE MOUSSE



      To wash your tasty blood-bath down, here's a super quick pudding that only requires cream and an industrial amount of the sweet purple yam "ube".

      Ingredients
      lots x pureed ube
      lots x ube jam
      lots x ube powder
      lots x whipping cream
      lots x icing sugar
      lots x pickled coconut gel
      you get the drift by now x macapuno balls
      lots x sugar palm

      Step 1.

      Whip up some cream with icing sugar until puffy.

      Step 2.

      Fold in every form of ube ever that you bought from your Filipino shop, until you get the perfect purple sludge.

      Step 3.

      Layer in a fancy glass with your rainbow-coloured pickled shit.

      So with only minor lasting trauma, here's a main meal of AZN deliciousness fit for the most patriotic of Filis, followed by a dessert with more yam than you can shake a jumbo pack of laxatives at. Mabuhay!

      Bone-appetit!
